National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day

In the past I've been very involved with this day and creating awareness on my blog, and helping with other blogs.

This year, I got the date wrong. The National Fibromyalgia Assocation was promoting an event in CA for May 15th. And somehow I got it stuck in my head that was the date.


It's actually today and I'm not prepared with any posts, any collaboration with other people, nor do I have the time or energy right now to go about it. Arghhh.

But then I remembered that Fibromyalgia awareness is a big part of what I try to do somewhat regularly around here.

So instead of smacking myself on the head, I'll just share with you a previous post on 30 Things About My Invisible Illness You May Not Know. I just ask that you link to me from your own blogs to help us spread the word about Fibromyalgia {and let me know in the comments if you did, please}. Thanks!

I also wanted to share with you this great post today about Fibro and her experience. I really appreciated this perspective!

And to my fellow Fibromites: know that you are LOVED! I appreciate you and this community we've built sooo very much. All my best to you as you fight this Fibro bear. I pray that we will all have better days, and that whether we are healed fully here on earth or not, may we always find ways to give God the glory!

I'm a day late, but please know that I'm thinking of you and your journey with Fibro. I don't have Fibro, but I do have MS and can understand many of the struggles you go through each day. (Remembering dates is one of them for me!) LOL
